Consolidation refers to the process by which memories are stabilized after their initial acquisition. This occurs over the short-term of hours–days by cellular changes in synaptic plasticity (synaptic consolidation) and over the long-term of weeks–years by circuit changes involving the recruitment of brain regions different from those where the memories were initially encoded (systems consolidation).
